Aristocrat Wins Major Systems Contract With Maryland Live! Casino, Including First Online Agreement

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Oct 4, 2011) - Aristocrat has secured a major systems contract with one of the largest casinos to open in 2012. The contract between Aristocrat and the soon-to-open Maryland Live! Casino includes the complete suite of Aristocrat's Oasis 360™ systems products and Aristocrat's new online play-for-fun solution.

The Oasis 360 system will cover all 4,750 devices on Maryland Live! Casino's full Ethernet casino floor, utilizing the latest technologies from Oasis 360. All devices will be enhanced with the nCompass™ media window and displays, and Maryland Live! Casino will have access to a range of advanced offerings, including the powerful bonusing engine nRich™, Ricochet Rewards™ and Splashdown Countdown™.

Maryland Live! Casino will be the first property to integrate Aristocrat's innovative online solution, nLive. Maryland Live!, powered by the new Aristocrat online platform, will launch a fully-branded play-for-fun virtual casino in March 2012 ahead of the property's grand opening in June 2012. The virtual casino will provide an exciting entertainment experience for Maryland Live! Casino customers including poker, slots and skill-based games. The site will allow Maryland Live! Casino to build its brand and establish customer relationships ahead of its opening. Oasis 360's nLiveLink will also enable Maryland Live! to integrate players' online and land-based profiles.

Maryland Live! Casino President and General Manager Rob Norton said, "We are creating the most unique casino gaming experience on the East Coast, right in the heart of one of the most populous regions in the country. We only want the very best for our customers in every aspect of the property, and after carefully considering everything on the marketplace, we decided Aristocrat and Oasis were the partners we needed to open strongly and position us for success far into the future."

"We are very excited to be selected by Maryland Live! Casino to be their casino system and online solutions provider," said Aristocrat Americas President Nick Khin.
